An Abstract: The ultimate aim of this research is to reach engineering solutions that can address the climate change problem, through discussing the afforestation process and measuring its impact on the rate, frequency, intensity, and timing of air temperature and humidity. The researcher conducted the study in the Globe Garden located in the schoolyard, using the experimental method. She planted Aptenia flower, as it grows and reproduces fast. The study was conducted with the experimentation approach, using two sets of variables, in order to collect data, extract information, and reach results affirming the relevant hypothesis . One of the most fundamental findings of the study proved that there is a kind of positive correlation between water vapor rising from corps, and air temperature and relative humidity change. As known, water vapor can keep heat, which, once released, can cause a major climate shift. The findings also clarified that there is an inverse correlation between relative humidity and air temperature – relative humidity is higher in winter than in summer
